Mary Josephine Washburn Adams

Birth: Jan. 11, 1838
Hampshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: May 16, 1874
Hampshire County
Massachusetts, USA

Daughter of Lauriston and Ilona Washburn

It is probable that neither Mary, nor her son, William, heard the shouted warning. Her husband was working at the James Mill, right down the road, and survived.
(In the Shadow of the Dam, Elizabeth M Sharpe)

This is Ilona Josephine Washburn Adams. My source for her name is FHL film 760743. I found her marriage to William D. Adams and now she is Mary J. Washburn. I wonder if her stepmother's (Mary Rice) name influenced her. I believe that she went by "Josephine". She did have daughter Mary E., the oldest child of three. William was the youngest.
